South Korean football club FC Seoul has to pay a fine of 100 million won (converted more than 74,000 euros) for placing sex dolls in the empty stands in last Sunday's league game against Gwangju FC.

The organizer of the South Korean league K League started disciplinary proceedings against FC Seoul on Tuesday evening and came with the heavy penalty within 24 hours.

According to the disciplinary committee, the club has tarnished the image and integrity of the K League and has also insulted female fans.

According to news agency Yonhap , it is the highest fine ever for a K League club. FC Seoul immediately announced "humbly accept" the sanction.

"We wanted to add some fun elements to the game, including dolls as real as possible, but we should have checked better ourselves," FC Seoul wrote in a statement on Monday. (Photo: Pro Shots)

FC Seoul asks for police investigation

The K League started over a week ago, after a delay of over two months due to the corona crisis. The matches are played without fans and FC Seoul wanted to add a bit more atmosphere with puppets in the stands.

The club thought to get normal mannequins, but many fans noticed that it was sex dolls during the duel with Gwangju FC.

FC Seoul apologized again on Wednesday and said it has asked police to investigate the matter.
